Achieve your A

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I used to head a school for young people who were outside the school system. Some had special educational needs and some behavioural problems but all had HUGE difficulties engaging with learning. One of the main contributors was the weight of wanting to be seen as good enough in other peoples eyes. This disabled them, so I always said ACHIEVE YOUR A. I won a Jack Petchy award for creating a safe space for young people to flourish and I celebrate that award but most of all I celebrate the success of those young people. 

Achieve your A, it could be a B.
Achieve your A, it could be a G.
All we want is your absolute best,
Then we can only but be impressed.
You’ll know when you’ve reached the peak for you,
Then there’s nothing else you have to do.
But be proud that you met your potential,
What others do is inconsequential.

  1. What wonderful words, It’s so important to not judge yourself based on others achievements and what they think, it’s a lesson for us all. We are all good enough, we just need to realise it, and it sounds like you are a great encouragement. #Blogstravaganza


  2. This is so inspiring, why can’t there be more people like you who work in education. As long as you do what’s best for you then that’s all anyone can ask for xx #BlogCrush

    That’s such a good sentiment – as long as you give something your best shot then you haven’t ever failed!
